Abstract

Reaction of toluene solutions of tris(aryl)gallium(III) compounds with water results in intra-molecular biaryl coupling (70% yield) and an oligomeric organogallium(III) hydroxide/oxide [Ga12O14H4(aryl)12], whereas reaction in THF with water leads to hydrolysis, formation of arylH, and for aryl = Ph the trimeric THF hydrogen bonded trimer, [Ph2Ga(μ-OH)]3 ·3THF.
